RoadRash's "Butterfly Twenty" This Twenty was bought from eBay in October 2014 for the grand total of 29.00. RoadRash used only things he had lurking around the workshop to bring it into riding condition. Off came the saddle to be replaced with a Brooks B17. The handlebars were replaced with a long lost pair of butterfly bars (found while looking for the saddle). A new stem was made by cutting an old pair of MTB bars in half. A new shifter and brake levers were found while rummaging through several boxes and drawers. He also had new cables on hand to use. The only things he had to buy were the sponge to slide onto the handlebars and a 1-1/8" to 1" reducer shim to fit the bars. He's now on the lookout for a lighter set of wheels to finish it off but this beauty is rideable now. On the test ride, RoadRash could hardly believe just how comfy the set up felt and thinks many miles will be put on this little beauty.
